Lansing, MI Dentist Accused Of Sexual Abuse
For many children and even some adults, going to the dentist is not a trip they like to take. But for one young patient, police say his visits were a nightmare. “This child was put in an unreasonable situation,” said Detective Elizabeth Reust. “His parents took him to the dentist and he got abused there so it’s particularly bothersome.”
Detective Reust and Detective Vicky Nevins of the Lansing Police Department have been investigating this case for the past six weeks or so. 64-year-old Dr. Wendell Alan Racette was arraigned on Monday morning on eight counts of criminal sexual conduct. A 20 year old man came forward just last month saying Dr. Racette molested him starting when he was just five years old.
